Chargers 33, Steelers 30: Steelers struggling while other AFC teams are on the rise

Another week, another team that looks like it has a better chance than the Steelers to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Remember a month or so ago when the Patriots and Chiefs seemed to be the main hurdles between the Steelers and Super Bowl LIII? Those were simpler times. Now the Chargers have stamped themselves …

Broncos 24, Steelers 17: Sloppy Steelers let win slip away

Who needs a first-round bye anyway? It didn’t exactly work out too well for the Steelers in the playoffs last season. The Steelers blew a chance to pull to within a half game of the Chiefs and stay ahead of the Patriots in the jockeying for AFC playoff seeding after falling 24-17 to the Broncos …

Steelers 52, Panthers 21: Six takeaways from Steelers win

It seemed awfully cold for August Thursday night at Heinz Field. The Steelers were playing the Panthers and Joshua Dobbs was at quarterback. Must have been Week 4 of the preseason, right? Nope. This game counted. The Steelers steamrolled the Panthers 52-21, putting up some scoreboard-tilting numbers that provide a perfect opportunity for some takeaways, number-crunching and did-you-knows. …

Steelers 23, Ravens 16: Ben Roethlisberger hangs tough, Steelers hang on

At 36 years old, Ben Roethlisberger‘s still got it. He can take the same kind of beatings he took when he was in his early 30’s. Roethlisberger completed 28 of 47 passes for 270 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Steelers’ 23-16 win over the Ravens Sunday at Baltimore. He also ran …

Ravens 26, Steelers 14: Defense fails early, Roethlisberger falters late

How bad is the Steelers’ defense? It’s reached the point where all it takes to beat the Steelers is an adequate starting quarterback. The Steelers fell to Joe Flacco and the Ravens 26-14 Sunday night at Heinz Field, falling to 1-2-1. Flacco is the last career starter that the Steelers defeated, and even then they gave …

Steelers’ first win of 2018 is collection of breakout games

The Steelers no longer are among the huddled masses of the NFL’s winless teams after their 30-27 win at Tampa Bay Monday night. They stay out of the AFC North basement, they have a better record than the Patriots and we will not have to re-live the horror of 2013’s 0-4 start. That’s the good …

James Washington could give Steelers scary wide receiver depth

A six-pack of Steelers thoughts, some longer than others, to crack open at the tailgate for Saturday’s preseason game against the Titans at Heinz Field: Receivers It doesn’t look like Martavis Bryant will win the Gruden Grinder award anytime soon. The Raiders’ coach traded a third-round pick to the Steelers for Bryant, and according to the …

Here’s what Ben Roethlisberger should have said about Mason Rudolph

It’s cool that the Steelers are bringing back their vintage 1970s jerseys with the block numbers and letters when they host the Browns on Oct. 28 at Heinz Field. Since that game is three days before Halloween, however, wouldn’t it have been better if both the Browns and Steelers had worn color-rush jerseys, with the …

Steelers’ playoff loss brings anger, not heartbreak

Steelers fans have seen some heartbreaking playoff defeats. Sunday’s 45-42 AFC divisional playoff loss to the Jaguars at Heinz Field wasn’t one of them. Hearts weren’t broken, but rather TV screens, drinking glasses, maybe a cell phone or two. Any object that could have been kicked, punched or thrown by angry Steelers fans was in …

Steelers never have easy time beating Jaguars

To get to Super Bowl LII, the Steelers most likely will have to beat Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium, something they’ve never done. Before that, however, the Steelers will have to do something else they’ve never done: beat Blake Bortles in Pittsburgh. OK, so it wasn’t really Bortles who beat the Steelers in their 30-9 …
